During the war sweets were on ration, we had to have our ration books and have the coupons clipped out of them when we bought a quarter of sweets.  Our standby when we ran out of coupons for the month was to buy a bag of 'broken biscuits'.  We always seemed to be hungry!
Those boiled sweets seem to have had a serious effect on our teeth.  Chocolate wasn't so bad, we could buy a small bar for 3d (threpence as it was known).
